Important COVID-Related Updates Until Further Notice
June 1, 2022

The past couple of years we have learned that the only thing certain about COVID is its uncertainty. Thank you for your flexibility and support as we continue to navigate the best path to keep our community connected in meaningful ways while minimizing the risk for COVID exposures.

The CDC has once again designated Middlesex county as high risk for COVID-19 transmission and recommends wearing masks indoors in all public places. Given this development and the numerous large gatherings over the next couple of months at the temple, the COVID Task Force is adding extra layers of protection for Temple Isaiah sponsored events until further notice.  

• Masks will be required indoors at the temple at all times

• Any eating associated with events will take place outdoors (with the exception of private family gatherings)

As a reminder, these items from our COVID policy are still in place:

• All persons entering the temple and eligible for the COVID vaccination (and not disqualified due to a medical condition), must be up-to-date with all COVID-19 vaccinations including at least one booster dose as eligible (view CDC guidelines here).

• Individuals who will be on the bimah during worship can be unmasked only if they are up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations and have a negative rapid antigen test that day (a home test is acceptable)

• If you did not go to school or work or if you left early due to illness, please do not come to the temple until symptom-free for 24 hours.

Please note: Individuals who have had a COVID exposure in the last 10 days, or who are on day 6-10 after having COVID, are still required to have a negative antigen test before entering the temple, and they must wear a mask at all times at the temple. These individuals should be mindful of social distancing if not wearing a mask outdoors. If you have a household member who is currently positive, you are at higher risk for contracting the virus, so we ask you to take that into consideration before coming to the temple.

Most importantly, stay home if you are sick and please take a COVID test! Many people think they just have a cold or allergies but are positive for COVID. Please keep in mind that a single negative test, especially an antigen test, does not exclude the possibility of COVID.
